Honey on Suppression of Human Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) Damage
Despite all the hype about lowering your cholesterol, the reality is that cholesterol all by its lonesome does not create problems. It is only when the cholesterol molecule gets oxidatively damaged that it becomes and oxysterol and subsequent damage to our cardiovascular system. So obviously, anything that protects the cholesterol molecule is a good thing.
This study finds that the large number of protective compounds in honey actually protect cholesterol. Remember that the darker and locally grown honeys are always going to be the best bet.
